Description

I can't believe I got another night of clear skies. I couldn't decide what to image and finally

chose M33. I was hesitant about imaging M33 because it is an object that usually manages to

damage my ego when it comes to astro imaging. However since M33 is slowly making its way

out of the sky for this season I decided I would just bite my lip and go for it. I call this old

school because the image was taken with just a dslr camera, modest aperture scope, and an

unguided mount. There was no LRGB imaging, no Ha filters, and no very long exposures etc.

M33 is an object that I can always try and get a better image of. With all of that said this

is my most recent attempt at imaging M33. Enjoy.
